Staffordshire Village Halls Network

Creating a safe and welcoming environment in village halls

The 6th village hall network meeting will once again be planned online via Zoom during Village Halls Week to kick off national celebrations of the important role that village halls play in rural communities.

With over 180 village halls in Staffordshire this is a great opportunity to share information, understand key topics in relation to managing halls, and hear inspirational ideas for local activity to ensure halls are well used.

Look for a Light Project

Communities have pulled together during Covid-19 producing relationships that would not have been seen before. New Inter-generational relationships have gained importance in communities.  There is a sense of neighbourhood. The cohesive work that has been completed during Covid-19 is an asset which we wish to retain, and with the lack of being able to properly celebrate Halloween and Bonfire night the Look for a Light project came into being as something to get involved in, something fun, something that creates light in the dark days of autumn and winter.
